Subject: Request to use Screen Shots in User Manual

This is to request your permission to use a series of screen shots of Microsoft Office for a user
manual we are developing. The manual is a step-by-step set of instructions for using the eBay
Web site, with screen shots. We have learned that our customers are able to make better use of
the software when they have illustrated and real-world screen shot examples of what they will
see when using Microsoft Office.

We have read and agree to abide by the criteria you have set forth at . Are there other permissions
we need to secure from you before we finish the manual?

Thank you for your assistance with this request. If there are additional permissions we need to
request, please contact me at or by telephone at 888-888-8888.
